    Is anyone looking forward to this? It's a modeling show hosted by Nigel Barker featuring Naomi Campbell, Karolina Kurkova, and Coco Rocha as judges/mentors. I'm hoping it'll be more legit than ANTM, and that they'll actually have girls with lots of potential. The prize sucks though, it's being featured in an ad for Ulta Beauty or something like that. Hopefully they'll have good photoshoots by prestigious photographers. They were supposedly in talks with Marc Jacobs and Zac Posen, so those 2 might appear as guest judges or something. Naomi and Karolina have lots of connections, so maybe they'll be able to get some really amazing people.

    I want to check it out. While I love me some catty drama, I really hope this show is better than ANTM in that dept. D:

    The prize is a contract with Ulta beauty...

    Seriously? Naomi, Coco, and Karolina with all their connections couldn't get a better prize? Most of the contestants are already signed to agencies so I guess including an agency in the prize would've been pointless, but I was expecting more than a contract with Ulta. At least ANTM was able to get Covergirl, VI, and BiV. Hopefully they get some good photographers for the show. Since almost all of the girls have modeling experience, I'm sure they'll perform better than ANTM contestants.

    Top 24 episode posted online: http://features.oxygen.com/videos/The Face/Season 1/vid:2620718

    Definitely a lot more professional than ANTM. I think Naomi's team is easily the best, just judging off of their faces. Although one of the girls on Karolina's team (Madeline?) looks sooooo similar to Karolina. Shocked that some of the girls chose Coco or Karolina over Naomi though...

    Team Naomi:

    wow I can't believe there's been no comments since! I just downloaded the first 4 eps and I might get through 2 tonight....so far I'm not impressed with the girls, or the prize (as mentioned before)... Oh how I would love to see a legit version of ANTM...although I guess the modelling world doesn't need any reality tv. Is this show not worth watching? I've got some backed up "Girls" to get onto if not :p

    I just watched the first few episodes on hulu. It really isn't spectacular, but I'm bored :)
    Margaux has a great figure. I also like the girl from China

    :lol: So much different than Tyra's "respect your mom, have self-respect, work it and did I remind you this last minute that I was rejected multiple times before being signed? Whoops, I did? My bad."

    Love you Naomi :bow:

    This! Ha! I loved it when she said this, it applies to everyone and everywhere!. I watched all the episodes yesterday and I find it a little dull, no girls stand out for me. Not sure if I will continue watching, maybe skip all the parts except for Naomi's.

    I just watched this episode, and I really do love Noami's coaching style and attitude. That girl was supremely annoying, she had to go. I really dislike anyone who makes themselves a victim.

    I'm watching another episode right now... does anyone else get the feeling that Sandra is mentally challenged in some way? She keeps going off on these psycho rants, its not normal :wtf:

    Stephanie has to go. I hate underdogs, they're usually underdogs for a reason. Her body is shit. The rest of the girls aren't spectacular either, but Stephanie and Sandra really irk me. The only reason I watch this is for the coaches. Naomi = goddess. She looks so amazing for her age. I love her attitude, and I love how she admitted that she eliminated Madeleine over Stephanie because Madeleine was bigger competition. Although I feel like her team is only getting so many challenge wins because the representatives from the companies are afraid of her :lol:

    Completely agreed... I can't get past Stephanie's lower legs and ankles... they look like tree stumps. I think after this, she can go home, lose some weight and maybe learn to be a model. She defiantly the the drive.

    and you're right, this actually shows what they do and say at castings, etc, no sugar coating. Is this show still produced today?

    Hahaha that's hilarious!! No, they did one season before this that I can't find anywhere, then this. It's a pity they haven't done more.

    I'm just watching for Naomi tbh. Everything she does: talking, walking, judging, bitching, just makes my jaw drop. And also scares me a bit. God I love her.
    She shits on everyone's favorites.
